About me

I am a licensed clinical professional counselor with 10 years of experience providing individual therapy. I have experience providing treatment for mood disorders, anxiety disorders, attachment issues, along with PTSD and other trauma related disorders. I spent 5 years providing individual and family therapy to families who had adopted children to help with attachment and trauma related issues. The past 3 years I have provided individual therapy to a variety of clients from young children to older adults in a counseling agency setting. I provide trauma informed care and utilize CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) modality. I have experience in utilizing DBT and mindfulness techniques. I am currently working toward completing my PhD in Clinical Psychology with plans to become a licensed psychologist. I love working and helping people and I know it is difficult for people to take that first step to seek help. I try to create an environment of safety and comfort to allow my clients to open up when they are ready to open up.

Amanda made the experience of diving into uncomfortable parts of my past feel safe and clear. I was able to quickly get the clarity I needed and supported me in seeing what we were working towards which really helped me process. I highly recommend her.

Work with me!
